Some facts:Show was filmed in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada – A detective from the year 2077 finds herself trapped in present day Vancouver and searching for ruthless criminals from the future.
Here is an excerpt of the Review by Jen Johnson of Den of Geeks
It would be an understatement to say that time travel has been done a LOT. I was afraid that a new series would make it a little overdone, but it seems like there’s always a fresh twist on the concept.
Anyone who is skeptical about “just another time travel show” should give Continuum a try. I’ve been pleasantly surprised and look forward to seeing the next season, whether I’m reviewing it or not.
It’s a little mind bending in places, but not totally confusing or hard to follow. You know that Liber8 is going to be behind most, if not all, of the subplots, so there are no wild tangents that don’t seem to make any sense.
The flash forwards give viewers insight into how Kiera has come across each of her enemies, but not much of their backgrounds are revealed during the actual show.

Set in Vancouver British Columbia, the year is 2077, world governments have fallen and have been bought out by corporations leading to loss of privacy and basic rights. A group of fanatical terrorists, bent on getting freedom back at all costs, destroy multiple buildings killing 30,000 people while targeting 20 members of the Corporate Board. As the 7 terrorists are about to be executed they attempt an escape by being sent back in time 6 years instead being sent back 65 years to our time, 2012. Dedicated CPS Protector (future police force) Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) attempts to stop their escape and gets swept away along with them. Stuck in the past and unable to get back to her husband and son, Kiera concentrates on bringing down the terrorists before they can wreak havoc in our present. Kiera receives unexpected assistance from a teen tech genius Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen) who is well known in the year 2077 as he invented much of the technology of the age. Part of the technology Alec has invented allows him to communicate with Keira and even see through her eyes or replay events she witnessed. Impersonating a detective of the Portland Oregon police department, Kiera forms an uneasy alliance with Vancouver detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster). After an extremely violent attack on the Vancouver police headquarters by the terrorists, they are ordered to work together by the Vancouver Police Chief Dillon (Brian Markinson) to work together to stop them.
